Large, striking, and rare, this 1972 Chevrolet Impala convertible is everything you love about a cool cruising droptop, right down to its original V8 under the hood. And so it's amazing you can get something this complete and well presented for such an affordable price.
The Impala convertible has a long an iconic history, and this was the end of the line. The Caprice droptop would solider on for a few more years, but 1972 shut the door on the Impala ragtop. That's probably why only 6,456 were produced 45 years ago, and how many do you think are left in this kind of stellar condition today? The factory-correct Ascot Blue has been treated to a professional respray over its lifetime so that it still gives off a nice gloss as you cruise all weekend long. The body panels retain the cresses like a newly pressed suit, and the doors shut with confidence, so you know there has been care in this car's lifetime. Brightwork is a big deal with these '70s cruisers, and so 1972 is an important year of distinction. The form-fitting bumpers make this classic look fantastic, and they would be changed by federal regulation by the next year. Add in the grille, headlight bezels, turbine-style wheel covers with correct Chevrolet markings, and you've got a fantastic factory-correct package.
Beneath the snug-fitting black folding top is a good-looking black interior. The button-top seats offer full-size comfort, so you get to take plenty of family and friends along for the ride. And when you do, this one even has provisions for features like factory air conditioning and an upgraded AM/FM/cassette stereo. But even when it's just you going for a solo cruise, this Impala provides. With a dash that's oriented around the driver and plenty of wood paneling, this has a great retro luxury atmosphere. And speaking of comfort, the power windows and power convertible top mean you never have to leave the driver's seat to go from enclosed luxury to a wind-in-your-hair experience.
Under the hood the numbers-matching 400 cubic-inch V8 presented in an exceptionally original condition. This small-block was a larger displacement option, which means this Impala has an extra helping of power and torque to move the luxury Chevy with ease. You can tell by the fresh belts & hoses, as well as the tidy overall setup, that there has been the right care applied to the motor over the years. And its smooth operation on the road reinforces this feeling. Add in the three-speed automatic transmission, power steering, and front disc brakes, and this is a great cruising package that needs nothing added, except you behind the wheel.
This is a head-turning V8 droptop with a story to tell. Hurry up before someone else figures out they can pick up a rare and roomy classic convertible for the price of a small family sedan. Call today!!!
